Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Motion sketching, part of After Effects CC 2019 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] Motion Sketching is a tool…that allows you to add a bit of motion capture…with your cursor inside of After Effects.…The main advantage here is that you can get some…fairly organic motion, as it records your mouse movement…in real time, as well as being able to quickly…rough out position key frames.…With a sketch in place, we can use the smoother inside of…After Effects to simplify the key frames…and fine tune from there.…So here in this composition, I've got some clouds…and I've got another composition with an animation of a fly.…So I'd like for the fly to move about…inside my main composition.…
I'm going to use Motion Sketching in order to do that,…but in order to use it, I do need to have a layer…to sketch onto, so let's go ahead and right click here…and create a brand new solid, and I'm going to keep this…solid size fairly small, 100 by 100,…so that I can kind of see it in the composition window as I…click and drag, moving it about.…If it was any larger, it might be too cumbersome…to see where exactly we are.…
